Overview

Thoroughly up-to-date and packed with real world examples that apply concepts to engineering practice, HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER, 2e, presents the fundamental concepts of heat and mass transfer, demonstrating their complementary nature in engineering applications. Comprehensive, yet more concise than other books for the course, the Second Edition provides a solid introduction to the scientific, mathematical, and empirical methods for treating heat and mass transfer phenomena, along with the tools needed to assess and solve a variety of contemporary engineering problems. Practical guidance throughout helps students learn to anticipate the reasonable answers for a particular system or process and understand that there is often more than one way to solve a particular problem.

  • A variety of new features make the learning experience more engaging and interactive.
  • Practical features in every chapter apply the content to "doing" engineering.
  • A new emphasis on renewable energy and energy efficiency prepares students for engineering practice in the 21st century.
  • New information on the history of heat transfer discoveries helps students develop an understanding of the development of the field.
  • Emphasis is placed on the importance of understanding the physical phenomena involved in a problem, recognizing the modes of heat transfer involved, and, for complicated physical processes, knowing that numerical methods can be used to help reach a realistic solution.
  • Chapter-ending student learning aids include a summary, discussion questions, class quiz questions, practice problems, and references.
  • Experimental determinations and analytic discussions explore the four primary material properties of heat and mass transfer: thermal conductivity, convective heat transfer coefficient, surface emissivity, and mass diffusivity.
  • Efficient coverage of analytical and empirical methods prepares students to assess, design, and solve contemporary engineering problems.
  • The book helps students develop an intuitive understanding of the relationship between heat and mass transfer and the disciplines of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.
  • Especially strong coverage of radiation view factors sets the book apart from other texts available for the course.
  • Photos and figures illustrate real industrial processes and relate theoretical presentations with real-world devices.
